I did a Google search for Slot Car Monsters and found that the domain is up for grabs. I maintain a list of sites that contain useful reference material, Model Motorist is one of those for example. It seems that Slot Car Monsters was included in that list, but it went dead a while back and I deleted the link. The link may still be on my laptop computer, I will try to check on that.

I did find the old link on my laptop computer, it was the same as the one that turned up in my Google search. It looks like Go Daddy closes out sites that have not paid up. Some outfits do not bother to do that until someone else wants the domain name.
Websites can come and go, if there is one that you are fond of you can do screen shots of the pages and make those into a PDF.

Thanks for that link, I have it bookmarked. I did screen grabs of the pancake armature and magnet parts just for safekeeping.
